Constructive changes for City Times, campus

CITY TIMES EDITORIAL

EDITORIAL

Since 1945, City Times has been bringing the City College campus community news on local events and stories pertinent to students.

This semester we are excited to return with a full arsenal of staff writers, editors and a full time faculty adviser. As an award winning paper and member of the Journalism Association of Community Colleges, we at City Times are committed to the pursuit of excellence in journalism.

Professor Roman Koenig will serve as full time faculty adviser at City Times and plans to create a degree program for journalism students on campus. Koenig also hopes to create a closer affiliation between City Times and “Newscene”, City College’s own television news show.

Returning with a full time faculty adviser means a better program and a better paper for City College.

Although the stories may be incentive enough for some, readers may also notice the City Times has had a face-lift. The redesign will give City Times a fresh new look, making it bold and eye-catching for readers.

Renovations this fall are being seen all around campus as plans for spring construction on the City College L building come to fruition (story page 5). Student concerns over parking will also be covered as the complex popularly known as ‘Modville’ takes precedence over student parking in Lot 2.

Future changes for campus life may also include online voting. In a proposal made by new ASG president Clemente Valdez (front page), online voting may soon come to City College.

Discouraged by last year’s voter turnout, Valdez hopes to encourage campus improvements, making it easier for students to take action.

Making a triumphant return this fall semester, City Times wishes only the best to readers as we close the summer and open to a fresh page of new opportunity. In our constant struggle to bring City Times our best, we encourage readers to send us their thoughts and ideas on how we may improve our paper.
